- Nothing really worth calling out in particular, just a few different small things. Sometimes you just have an unproductive week.
I read The Shadow Rising (by Robert Jordan), the fourth book in the Wheel of Time series.
On Monday I told my landlord that I couldn’t afford his £325k asking price, saying I could only get to about £300k. On Friday he got back to me and asked if that offer still stood, which it does. So next week I’m going back to the bank to get a decision-in-principle and to ask if they can recommend a solicitor or conveyancer.
On Sunday I bought some new books:
I upgraded my machines to NixOS 19.09. Other than a couple of tweaks to my config this was pretty flawless.
- Improved performance in Nixpkgs
- Designing File Formats
- Galactic algorithm
- Python 3.8.0
- My favourite Git commit
- Friday Facts #317 - New pathfinding algorithm
- Lake Peigneur: The Swirling Vortex of Doom
- Utility Fog: The Stuff that Dreams Are Made Of
- Fantastic Beasts and How to Rank Them
- Issue 181 :: Haskell Weekly
- This Week in Rust 308
